Swiss newspaper 20 Minuten reports that the Swiss band Lovebugs will be singing the song The Highest Heights at the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow. The Highest Heights happens to be the band's latest single too. Adrian Sieber one of the band members describes the song to be melancholic, energetic and hypnotic.
«The song is a piece of our heart because it represents all virtues of the band», says Adrian Sieber of the Lovebugs in an interview with 20min.ch. «The song was not especially written for Eurovision,” he continues, “it was already ready before we applied” Sieber himself had been flirting with the idea of taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest: «It just took me some time until my band colleagues were persuaded.». Now it is time for the band to perfect the act for the Eurovision semi final on 12th May. Sieber states that they have to work hard, training their voices for it, especially the Ooh-ooh parts: . «They are not used to it but we will surely manage it», Sieber promises.
